    I really love when a show takes the time and makes a great theme song or music for the opening. My personal favorite is Mad Men even though I don’t even watch the show. For some reason it just always sticks in my head all the time though American Horror Story and 30 Rock are near and dear to my heart too

    Game of Thrones and Dexter are near the top of my list.

    I get chills and tingles whenever I hear the theme for The (US) Office… It’s just now so iconic and there’s a sorrow to it too… It perfectly captures the mundaneness of the lives of these folks at Dunder Miflin… It’s perfection. It was hard though to choose from the above list, as both 30 Rock and Parks have brilliant theme music. Jeff Richmond’s scores for all the 30 Rock episodes, underscore etc., are sublime.

    Of the choices here, Mad Men. But I voted for other. American Dad! (my obsession strikes again…)

    I chose Mad Men, but I always loved the theme for Justice League.

    Its hard to choose objetively without taking into account the main title presentations, cause in that case I might choose True Blood or AHS, which combine music and imagery perfectly, but if I go by music ONLY, then its Mad Men. I also really enjoy parks and rec, but not among the best.

    The best in both music and (specially) presentations not here is Dexter.

    I agree! I loved the opening sequence of “Dilbert”, because it combines pictures and music perfectly, and it’s one of my all time favourites. Where I think the combination is more important, this seems to be asking just music, and then I have to go with The Office from this list. It is just a great opening to the show, but more importantly it can stand alone as a piece of music.

    Also, why are there all these mentions for Breaking Bad? It’s an extremely short couple of chords, and is only remarkable because of the show that follows it. It’s like The Good Wife, which is a great opening, but not to be ranked among the best.

    The Borgias. Hands down. Amazing opening music and title sequence. One of my favorites.

    I loooove Opening Titles and Themes and I’m always very critical of them, I could make this the longest post ever without even trying…

    30 Rock has been my ringtone since 2009. I can’t believe the show is already a year and a half over and I’m still using it (It was Arrested Development before). I planned on telling Fey and Richmond when I stood in line to meet them, but I gave up…the line was too long. I still regret that.

    Breaking Bad has a cool graphics until “eaking” and “d” appear, that font is awful. The theme is great though, even if it’s super short.

    You can’t compare Breaking Bad to the ones listed in the poll. And I feel like True Blood set the tone for a lot of opening titles like AHS and True Detective, so maybe those shouldn’t be there and leave the one that looks more original. The theme for AHS isn’t the best part, the titles and editing are it. True Detective’s theme is better than the show itself, that’s pretty much the part that got me excited the most with each episode, not the show.

    I believe that a great theme is the one you can still listen to and get excited with even in a show’s final season, recent examples of that are Dexter, Mad Men, True Blood. To still put yourself through those titles 7, 8 years into a show’s run and them being as long as True Blood and Dexter’s, it says a lot.

    Anyway, cool choices on the poll, you’re certainly missing The Office, Game of Thrones and Arrested Development, maybe even Modern Family, I voted for True Blood.

    The Office is there. I haven’t gotten around to Dexter yet so I’m don’t know the theme of it and didn’t know it was this popular.
